Okay, so here is what I suggest if you go here. Be up front with the waitress and don't allow her to bully you into eating what she recommends. Order whatever you want and don't let her decide for you. Also, don't expect friendly service. Simply enjoy the very interesting and memorable experience of this place for what it is,... More

Cute Little Restaurant next to Jewish Ghetto, we had pasta and ravioli, they were very good, not the best, but better than a lot of other restaurants. Would go back.

Sora Margherita is a tiny restaurant near the Jewish Ghetto in Rome. It's always crowded and you need to stop by early to put your name in for a later meal but the food is wonderful. Delicious pastas and fried artichokes. A special place! We only ate and walked in Rome this trip so you can imaggine how important food... More

We enjoy eating here for lunch, when we want very home-made pasta. Tip: I recommend the agnoletti with tomato and basil sauce. There is a fun video to watch on elizabethminichilli.com on the making of their pasta. You basically pick a pasta and sauce--though there are many other things like prosciutto and stuffed zucchini. The whole idea, just to clear... More

I believe this restaurant's evaluation is bipolar: it can either be five or one star. Food is amazing, they have among the best typical roman dish you can find in town. So why one star then? Very simple, because we have been (legally) CHEATED! We were a mixed group: I am Italian, the other were not. We came to this... More

The food and wine are decent, but the waitress is a disaster. She just looks for a chance to make you spend as much as it is only possible. We have ordered few starters and she brought 2 of each! When we said that this was way too much, she just ignored it. So obviously we have ended up paying... More

Very small place and very busy, food is just Italian food (but not top), price higher than better restaurants in Roma. We found much better restaurants in Roma (and less expensive) during our 4 days visit in Roma.

We went to this restaurant based on a recommendation from my daughters college friend that studied abroad. Kids loved the food. We ordered steak and received lamb chops. It was fatty but tasted good. The tables are very tight and the restaurant was filled. It seems that they had only 1 menu written on yellow construction paper in magic marker..When... More

The food was very good, and the portions are very generous. Unfortunately, the service is quite bad. The waitress was very rude, she forgot some of our dishes, wasn't reaaly happy because we didn't want wine with our food.

We aye dinner here twice in our five days in Rome. The first time was one couple, the second time two. A All the food was good both times, but on the second night, the waitress told us "carciofi" (artichokes) and then brought two orders without asking further. We mentioned carciofi Jewish style (but did not think we ordered it),... More
